The present study was designed to analyze maturation of the respiratory response to hypoxia and hyperoxia in 41 newborn lambs aged 2-90 days. The O2 respiratory response was tested by progressive isocarbic hypoxia while minute ventilation (VE), tidal volume (VT), respiratory frequency (f), mean inspiratory flow (VT/TI), were measured. The occlusion pressure (P0.1) was also determined as an index of the neuromuscular output of the drive to breathe. The strength of the peripheral chemoreceptors… CONTINUE READING
